Boss Mustang 50 Years
Of all the legendary names in the history of the Ford Mustang, one stands apart: Boss. The Mustang Boss 302 debuted for the 1969 model year and was built in limited numbers for the street through 1970. This book features never-before-seen production and racing photography, interviews with designers and engineers, and keen insight from author Donald Farr, a renowned Ford historian and Ford hall-of-fame inductee.
Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Boss cars were easily distinguished from their less potent stablemates by their race-bred powerplant, standard front spoiler, and bold graphics. In 2012, Ford revived this most revered of all Mustang models. Being a new racing counterpart and a modern street version that would deliver more than 440 horsepower, the Boss was truly back! In 2013, Ford rolled out the Boss one more time.
In Boss Mustang: 50 Years, find a complete history of the car—from its late 1960s origins in Ford's boardrooms through its Trans-Am successes then 1970 untimely demise, following up to the re-conception and development of the new spectacular, limited-edition 2012 and 2013 Boss Mustangs. Packed with brilliant photography and firsthand accounts from the people who created the original Boss, as well as the team that resurrected Ford's most iconic Mustang for the 21st century, this is the story every Mustang enthusiast has been waiting to read.
